I keep checking out the classes listed at the Joann's superstore, and wondered if anyone has taken any. Are they useful/worth the money? I am particulary interested in the quilting series, serger classes, and maybe beginning knitting.

For $10, I thought the Knifty Knitter class I took was a good deal.  The instructor taught us a lot of different stitches and sent us home with a handout, and it was fun to chat with other crafters.

(Which you can do if you come to Crafty Vixens sometime!  Check out the thread on this board!)

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I've been interested in taking some of their classes. I want to take a cake decorating class there or at Michaels.

I'd be down for a cake decorating class.  I think most of their knitting/crocheting classes are for beginners, and I'm more of a advanced beginner  Grin

Wait, I got distracted.  The question... I have yet to take a class at JoAnn's.  I had a patient who at one point instructed a class, and she seemed to feel that she got a reasonable percentage of the payment.  I think it was wire-wrapped silverware that she taught folks how to make, or quilting.  I can't remember now  Huh

I have my mom's serger and have no idea how to use it.

Honestly, I've never taken a crafty class.  Maybe that means I should give it a try.  Especially since I admitted to  having a fancy piece of machinery that I have no idea how to use.  A bit of me is worried that they might look at it and think that since it's not a recent model that I need to upgrade.

Has anyone done the scrapbooking class at Joann's?  I'd like to get into scrapbooking and I don't really know where to start, so I thought that'd be a good one for me.
